This is the most deceiving hotel we have ever been to; we had 2 superior double rooms (room 438 and 227) and although different, both as bad as each other. We did complain to the GM and got a bottle of champagne (that we didn't drink) as a kind gesture! Good: -location -friendly staff (Elena from concierge) Bad: -the rooms... More

This was a first class hotel. The only negatives were the price of breakfast and the cost of parking. We did not take breakfast as there are plenty of options close by. Because of the situation of the hotel, parking off site is expected, however 45 euros per night I feel is a bit expensive. It is a converted Palace... More

This centrally and strategically-located hotel really distinguishes itself with its amazing, attentive and friendly staff. We drove into Siena and the GPS led us through the restricted zone. We stopped at the no-car zone, and the porter came looking for us, down the hill and up again, on one of the hottest day. This restored interior was beautifully done. The... More

We arrived later than expected to Siena only to be greeted by the incredible staff of the Grand Hotel Continental. They swept in and took care of taking our bags from us, checking us in and getting us settled asap. They even upgraded our room. Our room was gorgeous and spacious and overlooked the main street in Siena. (This hotel... More

Positives: great hotel, amazing room with great view out (see photo). Perfect location for trips into town. Nice staff. Negatives: Slept very badly one weekend night due to a loud party outside. Stayed up most of the night watching film over the wifi which dropped every 15min & slow. Staff very apologetic - apparently this level of noise outside is... More

Understated luxury, service, location,comfort. These describe the hotel perfectly. It is located on the Main Street of Siena. You have easy access to the Campo and the Duomo, though a bit of a walk to get to it. It's an excellent location. Service was impeccable. Each person I interacted with was more cordial and accommodating than the previous one. So... More

We booked this hotel as part of our honeymoon, they were not at all accommodating about making changes/customer service and made no effort to help in any aspect, overall very disappointing that they feel that is acceptable way to treat paying guests

We loved the Grand Hotel Continental. The staff was extremely nice and helpful; the room was spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious - a great assortment of different kinds of food suited for any diet or taste. The location is also excellent - very close to both the Duomo and the Campo, and close to a lot of different... More
